If you want to maximize the view through your window when your blind is open, pay attention to the blind's stack height. "Stack height" is the amount of space your blind takes up at the top of your window when the blind is fully opened. Small stack heights maximize your view, while large stack heights block more of the view at the top of the window. Click here to see specific stack height measurements based on the blind's size.
Multiple blinds on one headrail help you more easily cover wide windows or patio doors. A single headrail makes installation easier and creates a clean, unified look.
Choose which side of the window treatment should have the lift control. Think about the placement of the window and any furniture or obstacles in the room, and choose the side that's most accessible.
For a single blind: Lift control can be positioned on the left or right.
For multiple blinds on one headrail: Lift controls must be positioned to the outside.
Hold down brackets prevent door-mounted window treatments from bouncing around as the door is opened or closed. They can also be used to secure window-mounted treatments subjected to heavy wind exposure. They're not recommended for motorized window treatments.
